What happened at the final hearing
And what order did you want?
From what you have written it may well be that you would wish to appeal this order. Appeals are however not straight forward and it would be sensible to take a copy of the magistrates facts and reasons (their judgment) to either a barrister (on direct access) or solicitor to determine whether there are grounds to appeal (the magistrates got it wrong). It would appear that you concern is that they either did not consider the safeguarding concerns or scrutinise the order under PD 12J (there is a very useful and helpful book on this topic which might also assist you - I think its a tenner on Amazon - I have attached the link - https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Books/How-Represent-Yourself-Family-Court-understanding-resolving/147211910X). Happy to discuss and please rate positive.
It can but the court are often reluctant to change or vary an order so recently made.
There should still be facts and reasons and these are key. If you have not received them then you must chase the court. Please also rate positive
His behaviour is not a factor when the court consider Xmas mornings but you are perfectly entitled to ask. You need to appeal with 21 days of the order although you can ask for an extension. I would get a lawyer to look at the facts and reasons before appealing. Please rate as it appears I have answered the original questions.
